Cultivating Creativity: Celebrating 75 Years of Wustum - Part 2

June 2 - August 5, 2017

Since 1941, the Charles A. Wustum Museum of Fine Arts has been supporting and fostering creative activity—with classes and workshops for area residents, a regularly rotating series of exhibitions, and expansive outreach programs that bring the arts to those of all ages. For the next year, Wustum—and its offshoot RAM which opened in downtown Racine in 2003—will be honoring this accomplishment of 75 years of operation. 

 

Cultivating Creativity is a sampling of photographs, articles, exhibition materials, and general information chronicling Wustum’s history. While not an exhaustive accounting of everything that has happened over seven-and-a-half decades, it summarizes the breadth of activities and accomplishments of a much-loved institution.
